Yankees' Luis Severino: Will start Monday

News: Severino will start Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Severino tossed two innings of relief Thursday against the Rays and hasn't started a game since Aug. 14, so don't be surprised if he's held some sort of pitch count for Monday's outing. The youngster has been sensational since converting to a relief role, but his 8.58 ERA over nine starts this season make him an untrustworthy streaming option against the powerful Blue Jays offense.

Brad Peacock
Astros' Brad Peacock: Takes third straight no-decision Saturday
Brad Peacock, RP, HOU
9/25/2016
News: Peacock threw well, but took another tough luck no-decision in a loss to the Angels on Saturday. He allowed one run on one hit, struck out seven and walked two over five innings.

Over the last three outings, Peacock has a 2.21 ERA and 0.796 WHIP, but he has nothing to show for that in the win column. In nine MLB appearances, including four starts, Peacock has a 2.67 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 27 innings, but he has yet to record a decision.

Brandon Kintzler
Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Closes door on Mariners' 9th inning threat
Brandon Kintzler, RP, MIN
9/24/2016
News: Kintzler picked up the save in Saturday's win over the Mariners by allowing only one single in his inning of work.

The one-run lead Kintzler had upon starting the 9th was threatened when Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz both reached base to begin the inning -- the latter on an error by Miguel Sano -- but Kyle Seager grounded into a double play, then Adam Lind to flied out to end the game. This conversion marked Kinztler's 15th save in 18 chances.

Craig Kimbrel
Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Notches 30th save in Saturday win

9/24/2016
News: Kimbrel tallied his 30th save in Saturday's 6-4 victory over the Rays, giving up a solo homer but also striking out two over an inning.

The closer saw Logan Forsythe take him deep to right field with two outs, but then bore down to get Kevin Kiermaier swinging to end the game. The earned run was the first Kimbrel had surrendered since Aug. 9 against the Yankees, breaking a string of 16 appearances where he'd seen his ERA progressively shrink. Kimbrel has now converted 18 consecutive save opportunities and has an 82:24 K:BB to go along with a 2.65 ERA.

Francisco Rodriguez

News: Rodriguez (3-4) uncharacteristically fell apart in the ninth inning Saturday against the Royals, giving up five earned runs on four hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning. He also recorded a strikeout.

The veteran closer blew his fifth save of the season by giving up five runs on a two-RBI double to Paulo Orlando and a go-ahead three-run homer to Eric Hosmer. Rodriguez had posted five straight scoreless outings and converted seven consecutive save opportunities before Saturday's outing. He's now 44-for-49 in save chances on the season.

Kelvin Herrera, RP, KC
9/24/2016
News: Herrera notched his 12th save in Saturday's 7-4 victory over the Tigers, pitching a perfect ninth inning.

He was particularly sharp while disposing of Erick Aybar, Andrew Romine and Jose Iglesias on just 10 pitches after the Royals had made a spectacular five-run comeback in the ninth. Herrera did a solid job as the closer while Wade Davis endured a DL stint earlier in the summer, and has converted 12 of 15 save opportunities this season while also amassing 26 holds.

Analysis: 

Wade Davis
Royals' Wade Davis: Notches second victory of season versus Tigers
Wade Davis, RP, KC
9/24/2016
News: Davis (2-1) gave up a hit over one scoreless inning in Saturday's 7-4 victory over the Tigers.

The veteran righty fired 10 of 17 pitches for strikes while posting his third straight scoreless effort. Davis is typically used in closing situations and has converted 25 of 28 save opportunities this season, including his last four, but toiled away in the eighth inning Saturday and earned the victory when the Royals put together a spectacular five-run comeback in the ninth.

Ken Giles
Astros' Ken Giles: Diagnosed with wrist contusion
Ken Giles, RP, HOU
9/24/2016
News: Giles has been diagnosed with a right wrist contusion, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

In a stroke of bad luck, Giles was hit on the wrist by a line drive in batting practice Saturday as he was going through his normal pregame routine in the outfield. X-rays were negative but Giles was said to be in severe pain immediately following the incident, and the injury is of course to his throwing hand. It's uncertain if or when he'll pitch again this season.

News: Aquino (illness) is available to pitch Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Aquino missed a handful of games with a viral infection, but he returned to throwing Saturday and will be available out of the pen Sunday. The left-hander last pitched Monday against the Red Sox, tossing two-thirds of an inning and allowing one hit.

Brad Ziegler
Red Sox's Brad Ziegler: Cleans up Friday for save
Brad Ziegler, RP, BOS
9/24/2016
News: Ziegler closed out Friday night's 2-1 win, working his way around a leadoff double and an intentional walk to record his fourth save in an Boston uniform.

Ziegler got the call in the ninth inning on a night when neither Craig Kimbrel nor Koji Uehara were available. He needed 21 pitches to get the job done, but held on to help Boston win its ninth straight.
